Lion Walk & Breeding Project

Your work will assist in helping this project to continue and, over the long term, will also hopefully contribute to preventing the decrease in the lion population in Africa.

Project highlights:

  • Walk alongside lions as part of the pride and enjoy the exhilaration of being part of a hunt as the young cubs learn to stalk their prey
  • Work on the world’s leading programme for the release of lions back into the wild
  • Experience the African bush in a very special way. You will be actively involved in a number of conservation activities
  • Immerse yourself in local Zimbabwean culture
  • Take advantage of optional trips to see more of the area’s spectacular wildlife areas in neighbouring Botswana or Zimbabwe including the enormous Hwange National Park, with the chance to walk with rhino at Matopos National Park and visit the lion rehabilitation programme’s breeding base
  • Make friends for life with the other international volunteers on the programme

What you'll gain from doing this project:

  • An exciting, never-to-be-forgotten adventure into African bushland.
  • New skills, more confidence, a greater understanding of a different culture, invaluable personal and professional development.
  • An entry on your CV or résumé that will demonstrate your initiative and caring qualities ... and make you stand out from the crowd in the job market
  • The enormous satisfaction of contributing to the conservation of lions in Africa, and knowing that you made a difference
  • And best of all ... an unforgettable experience!

User Comments:

“I gained a greater confidence when working with animals and also a greater respect for them. The best thing was meeting new people, comparing and sharing experiences and being able to work so closely with the lion cubs. I would definitely recommend this placement. The staff here are very supportive and helpful. Volunteers worked well as a team and made new volunteers feel very welcome. Facilities are excellent and extra spending money is very minimal.”
